Vintage 1950's Bespoke Handmade Size 10 Antique White Wedding Dress

£75.00

Product description

Beautiful handmade dress with embroidered overlay chiffon

This intricate designs contains an under dress and a sheer embroidered overlay. The under dress is full length and is surrounded by net fabric to create a slight full effect. The top of the inside dress is boned and has straps for extra comfort. The overlay has a higher neckline than the under dress, this creates a sheer illusion. The sleeves are sheer and full length with clips at the bottom which can be worn open or fastened.
The dress fastens at the back with a zip and a hook and eye closer to the neckline which creates an open section.

The skirt is mid length and lined with netting, it has the same embroidery pattern as the top. The hem of the overlay is finished off with netting.
This dress would pair beautifully with plain net veil.
This dress was originally full length but has been up-cycled into a lovely wedding tea dress which looks much better than the original style. (The last picture is a before photo)

Damages:
Some small marks on the front of the dress, this has been reflected in the price. The dress would benefit from a dry clean.

Measurements:
Bust 28"
Waist 30"
Length Skirt (side) 25.5"
Length of Zip 12"
Nape to Hem 44"
